The 5-cost splicer feels really slow, and without much of a payoff. Overall feels like the curve is too steep imo.

Obstinate Baloth is a sideboard card against discard decks. Gearhulk I would avoid. Obliterator is strong but requires a deck to be heavily built around him so i’d avoid.
My suggestion would be to worry less about the heavy hitters and go more for those value-gains. If you’re going down the Winding Constrictor and/or Hardened Scales route (which seems strong), then you probably just want lots of lower-costing creatures that can become monsters in their own right.
Scavenging Ooze nets you a big creature, life, and grave disruption
Tireless Tracker gives you cards while he gets swole (you’ll want loads of fetches though)
As Xica has already mentioned, your point-of-difference over hardened scales decks is your colouration in black - where you want to be running hand disruption and killspells. Outside of that, you should be looking for fast, efficient killers that can thrive in such a resource-deprived boardstate. Don’t try investing in high-cmc cards to do this if you can avoid it.

So, looking at your non-budget deck, i’m concerned. There are loads of really high cmc cards and you don’t really have much ramp at all to let you get those cards out significantly quicker.
Against typical modern matchups things look bad:
Aggro decks will out-race you before you can get your board state together. Specifically, burn will be able to deal you 20 without really breaking a sweat here.
Combo decks will probably also have a great time. You do have a few answers for Devoted Druid decks, but probably not enough considering your decks slow speed. Storm just auto-wins
Midrange (which is what your deck is) will just out value you. You have a lot of cards that do nothing on their own, while your opponent will be getting massive gains from every card, be it a Lili, Uro, Bloodbraid, etc.
Because you have a lot of cards doing nothing on their own, control decks will probably also make your life hard.
I think you should focus on lowering your mana curve significantly, and look to include only those cards that provide immediate impact to the board, and ensure your sideboard better-hates against your weaknesses.

Xica thanks for the feedback. Yeah i was already aware Hapatra generates less tokens from Black-Suns than Nest would.
I’ve made some changes to the deck, namely ditching almost all of the creatures. In their place, more disruption, Mishra's Bauble to help draw through the deck, and, as it’s increasingly likely i’ll be able to stall out decks, a few Wurmcoil Engine. The deck looks now to play out more of a slow grind where i can hopefully force a late-game where i can draw into a more advantageous position.
I don’t have any Plunge into Darkness on hand, but it seems like a decent addition so i’ll try hunt down a playset.
